    Tom, Yep fresh pie and today grandma is canning homemade jam!
    I gave Tyler some detail parts for his building so now the roof will look more realistic, even has a few birds!

    .....
    Do you weather before or after the dull coat? And I have used hairspraiy to seal in the weathering, although I am not 8 yrs. old and did not have to worry about glue showing! :oops: .......



    I dull coat them weather I weather it or not. I am not 8 either but I do smear the glue at times.:mrgreen: I also resconsruct old building i get on ebay and at shows and also kit bash them from time to time and they will show old glue. As I said I do smear a litte testors. I admire those who dont and those who can airbrush deatils and wearthering to such a fine degree like you see in the train magazines.

    It does fog the glass in windows however.

    When I weather a structure I fix it with Dull coat as well.
    I use chalk for somethings and dilured water base craft paints for others.

    Sometimes I use rust red primer and flat black spray paints in the can from KMart.

    I think you should enter your project in the Kitbuild Challenge. BTW, let me know if you do so I can withdraw mine! Great job on your first project. I can't wait to see your 100th project! Don't forget to thank Grandpa......

    Tell those people on the building to not jump! They should use the suicide hot line if it's that serious! Just kidding. Great buildings!

    -JH-

    When I said 'just kidding', I meant that they can jump if they want to. I really don't care.

    They are OK, they have UMW insurance. They may have to however if thier jobs are out sourceed or if they are replace by illegals as the mine owners are lobbying for in KY.

    Gosh, I was joking about all of that! Way to take a joke to seriously! Ugh!!!
    Good work on the building, even though nothing has changed since the last time I posted.

    -JH-

    I'm not serious about you ruining the joke. I'm not one of those jerks.
